Gluten-Free Hawaiian Haystacks

5 from 2 reviews

I made these haystacks with a creamy chicken sauce made from scratch. No canned cream of chicken soup. For added color and flavor I sautéed zucchini and bell pepper for another hot topping that is quick and super easy to make along with the suggested sides list.

For the Creamy Chicken Sauce:

  1. Heat the butter in a large sauté pan with high sides on medium/high heat.
  2. Add the onion and sauté for 1 minute. Add the chicken and sauté until the onion is translucent and chicken is cooked through. Add the flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and ground mustard to the chicken and stir until fully absorbed into the butter. Continue to cook the chicken/flour mixture for another 30 seconds so that the starch in the flour can cook out. Pour the can of chicken broth into the pan and cook, stirring constantly until thickened.
  3. Pour in the milk and bring to a boil, stirring until thickened. Check seasonings and add more salt, if desired.

For the Sauteed Vegetables:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a sauté pan over medium/high heat. Add the zucchini and peppers and sauté until just tender. Add salt and pepper to taste.


  1. Top a serving of rice with creamy chicken sauce, sautéed vegetables, and desired toppings.
